Waist Trainers: Do they really work? Reasons I would, and would not, suggest them

This is a sponsored post in which I received waist trainers at a discount in exchange for a honest review. This post contains affiliate links, but all opinions are 100% my own.

Waist Trainers have become a popular topic, endorsed by a slew of celebrities. Promising a trimmer, hour-glass shaped figure that every woman wants. And yes, admittedly after having a baby of my own, I no longer have six-pack abs and a flat tummy. Such is Mom Life.

And yes, Kim Kardashian, I do envy your curves and seemingly complete flat stomach. And you owe it, to waist trainers (and maybe photoshop). They have been touted as an effective tool for exercise, weight-loss and toning of the body.

Waist Trainers - Do They Work?

But how do they work? Do they work? And are they safe?

I tried this waist trainer for the last week, and here is my opinion on their effectiveness, and how I would recommend you wear one (should you be interested).

EiVi Panties by Genial Day Review

Guys, take a seat. Ladies, let’s talk about Aunt Flo…

Not something we necessarily want to talk about – but it is a part of life. And honestly, having your period sucks for a variety of reasons. But it really sucks for your panties. This is a sponsored review in which I received free product in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are 100% my own and not swayed in any way. This page also contains affiliate links.

And aside from ruining your favorite pair, it also sucks during this time of the month if you have skin allergies. Or PH balance issues. Not to mention if you just went through childbirth, or gynecological surgery!

So, as I’ve been hearing a lot about the new line of feminine products that Genial Day offers, you can imagine how excited I was to do an unboxing last week!

Check out the awesome package I received from Genial Day!

Pads, Liners…and “Period Panties”

I received Regular liners, Low Flow pads, and Heavy Flow pads, to use with the EiVi panties. They are specifically designed to help reduce odor and bacteria growth. A Tourmaline Mineral is used within the inner strip of the pad, protecting the reproductive system from harmful bacteria found in what the liners catch. This mineral aso helps balance your PH level, boosts your metabolism, and is said to help the body naturally repair and heal faster during “that time of the month.”

So just the pads and liners themselves, are great for those who suffer from irritation, heavy flow, and painful/irregular periods. I thought they were super thin, but actually did a great job!

The EiVi Panties themselves (available in several models and colors) are made of organic cotton, with a special finish that blocks the spread of bacteria as well. They are also designed with little pockets that help hide the wings of the pads/liners.

EiVi Period Panties by Genial Day

What were the EiVi panties like?

Extremely comfortable! I thought they were very well made, and wouldn’t mind wearing them all the time. The pocket for the wings, is actually quite genius. I’m not sure if you could use any kind of pad/liner with these, since I used specifically the Genial Day brand products together, but I can say at least one thing. As far as Aunt Flo goes, her visit wasn’t entirely uncomfortable using these products.

Another plus for the eco-conscious;these products have been tested for harmful chemicals, and contain none!

ZENBand & ZENTones Program Review

ZENBand & ZENTones Programs by Blooming Wellness – Review

This is a sponsored post in which I received free products (A ZENBand and ZENTones Programs) in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own!

As we all know, stress and anxiety are killers. And if you’re married, or a parent, then you probably have a small amount of stress, in the very least. So when I found the ZENBand by Blooming Wellness, I became naturally intrigued. What I thought was just a cute, stylish headband, turned out to be a lot more!

What is the ZENBand?

The ZENBand headband is perfect for working out and relaxing!

The ZENBand itself is a lightweight, cotton headband. Designed for relaxation during exercise, or rest periods. It’s incredibly comfortable and I love it’s Bohemian style. Plus, I can wear it no matter how my hair is done (or not done) for the day, which is a BIG plus.  Another really cool added feature to the design, are the earphones! Most earbuds tend to fall out of my ears easily. These, are flat, easily sliding into the back of the band. They don’t put any pressure on my ears, and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. The sound quality is amazing, and I think I like them better than my Beats (shhhh…).

Another cool thing about the ZENBand – the cotton is infused with lavender essential oils to promote relaxation, which aids the stress and anxiety programs, but more about that in a minute.

I’ve been wearing this during my morning run, working around the house, and even going to the store while my hair is hideous. It’s cute, it’s comfortable, and something I could really wear all the time!

Ok, so what are ZENTones?

The ZENTone programs are designed to help someone with sleep, anxiety, depression, headaches, stress, and focus. They use nature sounds, rhythms, waves and tones, to help the listener relax and focus. I’ve been using these various programs while exercising, writing, and meditating.

The Nap Time program is awesome at night – I’ve always had trouble sleeping. Especially while pregnant; any kind of “nature app” that would play rain or waterfall noises, would be the only thing to lull me to sleep! I’ve been using the ZENBand with their NapTime Fall Asleep program (putting the band over my eyes, which also helps block out light), and it helps get me to a point I can shut my phone off, and just go to sleep.

I thought all of their programs were pleasant, and really did help me to focus on my work, or take a breather when needed.

So if this sounds like something you’d benefit from, check out the Blooming Wellness website, as well as the official ZENBand Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. If you have a ZENBand, let me know how you like it! I know I’m in love with mine, and it’ll be a staple to my workout, and meditation routine!

And, of course, a really big thanks to Blooming Wellness for letting me try these awesome products!
